New for 2013! The Juggernaut has returned! Known as one of the hottest ASA bats to ever hit the field, the newest Juggernaut certainly lives up to expectations. Constructed from DeMarini's premium TR3 F.L.O. Composite, the J3 gives players a strong, lightweight hitting zone with an end-loaded swing weight. But that's not all. The two-piece J3 features DeMarini's Half and Half Technology that, when coupled with TR3 F.L.O. and a Stacked DoubleWall design, creates the largest, most responsive sweet spot in the industry! Half and Half also silences feedback on off-center hits, while the Stacked wall design gives players the most power even when they don't make ideal contact. Half and Half works by flexing before impact and recoiling with a burst of ball-launching energy! The J3 features a Big D end cap that helps keep the barrel stiff and force power directly to the giant sweet spot. The end of the barrel also features a Rotation Index to help achieve an even break-in and allow players to get the most from the ultra-responsive TR3 F.L.O. Composite. On the other end, the handle of the J3 is wrapped with a two-piece Hybrid Comfort Grip that is built for ultimate comfort and tack. DeMarini: Born Hardcore! The J3 features the new ASA stamp and is approved for play in ASA and ISF only. It is backed by a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty. Free Shipping!

Pros: Not too end loaded, hit 2 home runs first use out of the wrapper, end knob feels great, effortless swing, puts 30 ft on my old easton extended, cant wait to see what happens when its broken in.
Cons: Entire team wants to use it.
by shawlu - Mar 22, 2013
Pros: Hottest bat out of wrapper i have ever swung!
Cons: Do not use in cold weather will break easily!
by kcd113 - Apr 08, 2013
Pros: Other teams think its shaved because it hits that well. It is stupid hot when broken in. I have over 900 hits on this bat with more then 250 home runs. Love this bat! Has flex like the old Jug. Started to web up around 500 hits. Looking to get a couple more. Would recommend for people with slower swing speeds.
by Kyle - May 08, 2013
Pros: Awesome feel and hot right out of the wrapper, couldn't be happier.
Cons: White bats get dirty fast.
by vlcmstn_az - Jul 17, 2013
Pros: The exit speed off the barrel is VERY impressive. Distance is there too once it breaks in. Has a pretty decent endload to it.
Cons: Takes a while to break in.
by The Boss - May 06, 2013
Pros: Bat is Awesome, Entire Team hit better then Ever with this bat,Even the Girls thought it made a big difference.
by Jet68 - Jul 02, 2013
Pros: First time DeMarini user, and I love this bat. I was worried about durability, but not anymore, it's cold in Maine most of the time and this bat is holding up fine. Hit a long bomb second game and I'm only 175lbs. WICKED HOT BAT.
Cons: NONE, PERIOD!
by RMNJ - Jul 06, 2013
Pros: Bat is wicked hot out of wrapper. Added at least 30 to 50 feet to my swing and I am not a big guy. Very flexible like Juggernaut OG, no need to take massive cut to feel effect of whip like action. I have a 26 oz but it feels lighter. Highly recommend to have in your bag. Definitely one that will be known as a classic.
by RGD - Jul 11, 2013
Pros: Amazing straight out of the wrapper, starting to break in after about 60 cuts and has added 20-30 feet to my hits.
Cons: None so far
by Anonymous - Jul 19, 2013
Pros: Bat was amazing right out of the wrapper. I went to a softball tourbey that weekend and batted .800. Its an amazing bat. Thank you
by vern - Jul 22, 2013
Pros: Like others have said, this Bat is Hot right out of the wrapper and is very well balanced. Great investment and still is in great shape after being used in 5 straight weekend tournaments.
by ryno - Aug 05, 2013
Pros: Hit a bomb over 300ft fence, 1st swing wit j3, it was still in wrapper when I hit HR
Cons: None so far
by tuna boat - Aug 09, 2013
Pros: Grip is a amazing no vibration. Fast break in. Adds about 20-30 ft to your hits
Cons: Sweet spot doesn't extend down a lot.
by hilgers - May 05, 2013
Pros: When they say its hot out of the wrapper they mean it. Took it out for some BP today and hit 5 long bombs. First game is tomorrow night
by johnny softball - Sep 20, 2013
Pros: hot right out of the wrapper. hit a ball off the fence with the 3rd ball off the bat. lots of flex and add the end load and it feels a couple ounces lighter than it actually is. shorter barrel but huge sweet spot
by usccutie99 - Sep 25, 2013
Pros: This bat does not need to be broken in...at all. Took the wrapper off of on Thursday, went to the batting cage on Saturday (hit great), practiced with it on a Sunday (hit even better), hit a homerun over the fence in a championship game on Monday (first FEMALE to ever do it)! Enough said... Buy this bat!! Bitter sweet though, because my team loss 24-21. Great effor though. Go VZW Cell Razrs!!!
by NTL32UMB - Sep 29, 2013
Pros: This bat was supplied in a mens tournament. Its hot right out of the wrapper. Got hotter once it broke in. Has a great feel to it and nice sweet spot on it.
by Wulbs20 - Oct 09, 2013
Pros: HOT!!! Bat just launches balls into the stratosphere. Great pop and you can barely feel the ball hit the barrel. The attendance at our games has reached max capacity in the bleachers because the Chicks dig the Long Ball.
Cons: Overall this bat will cost you about $3,300. $300 for the bat and an extra $3000 for all the windshields you will be breaking by launching balls onto the highway 400+ feet away.
by Chuck D - Oct 22, 2013
Pros: Smokes the ball from 1st swing and still delivers same results after a year. Mongoloid performance!
Cons: Designed for softer core balls (hence the ASA only stamp) Use .50 or softer ball and durability will not be an issue.
by Alex - Nov 05, 2013
Pros: Bought this bat an hour before game time. It was a little cold outside, temperatures around 40 degrees. I was worried about the bat cracking but didn't see any issues with it. 2nd swing I hit a 2 run homerun. The sweetspot on this bat is closer to the end of the bat from what I noticed for the rest of the game. I got the 28 oz because I intend on letting teammates use it. However I also swang the 26 and both felt great.
Cons: The other team had this bat as well and hit 3 home runs in the first inning. I was told by the sales associate that sold me the bat that Demarini is not going to make this specific bat anymore because it has too much pop.
by Nobody - Nov 06, 2013
Pros: A lot of people hitting their first home runs with this bat. This year's Salvo. I think it helps slower swings more than a masher because of the handle flex.
Cons: Seen a lot of these break early. Not going to last unless using the 52/300 balls. Expensive.
by Sportsguy - Jun 18, 2013
Cons: This is the second bat after warranty replacement and both broke within 4 games
by roach89!!! - Jan 13, 2013
Pros: Hitting bombs after 10 swings.
Cons: Broke after 30.
by kcd113 - Dec 03, 2012
Pros: This bat is crazy hot. looks great too!
Cons: come on its a demarini
What do you think about the 2013 DeMarini J3: DXNT3 Slow Pitch?

I'm looking for a bat for the .44 CORE balls. Would this be a good model?
Asked by al on May 31, 2013Answer Question
The 2013 DeMarini J3: DXNT3 Slow Pitch bat features the new ASA stamp and is designed to hit the new ASA .52 CORE softballs. If the bat is used with the .44 CORE softballs, it becomes more susceptible to cracking. Any bat that features the 2004 ASA stamp would be designed to hit the .44 CORE softballs.
· May 31, 2013
Our league uses .44 COR, 375 COMP balls. Will they be OK for use with this bat?
Asked by lj on May 23, 2013
The 2013 DeMarini J3: DXNT3 Slow Pitch bat features the new ASA stamp and is designed for use with the new .52 or .50 COR softballs. Using the J3 with the .44 or .47 COR softballs will cause the bat to be more susceptible to cracking.
· May 23, 2013
Can you explain the concept behind two-piece vs one-piece construction? I have concerns for two-piece longevity after reading reviews of both this bat and the Miken Triad. $300 bats shouldn't crack.
Asked by deshray on Apr 15, 2013
The main difference between one-piece bats and two-piece bats is that one-piece models are developed as one continuous piece of metal as opposed to being pieces bonded together. Two-piece models are created in two sections, a barrel and a handle, and then those two pieces are bonded together. The main advantage for a two-piece bat is to reduce vibration for the batter's hands. Bats do play a violent role in the game of softball and baseball, and take a lot of impact. Even $300 bats like this 2013 DeMarini J3: DXNT3 can crack. That's just the nature of the game. Manufacturers realize this fact, which is why they typically offer full warranties on their bats.

Can this bat be used for the 44/375 or the 40/375 balls?
Asked by AK on Mar 19, 2013
The 2013 DeMarini J3: DXNT3 was produced under the new ASA standard and is designed to perform better with the softer compressing softballs ASA is now using. It can be used with harder compression softballs, but the bat will run a great risk of cracking.
· Mar 19, 2013
My team has a lot of single and double guys. We play in a USSSA league that uses the dimpled ball, how will this bat hit those balls? Also we play ASA tournaments, how will it hit those balls?
Asked by Heap30 on Mar 11, 2013
The 2013 DeMarini J3: DXNT3 Slow Pitch is not approved for play in USSSA leagues. It should handle the ASA tournaments with no trouble.
· Mar 12, 2013
Does the J3 hit the new ASA balls?
Asked by Bair on Mar 05, 2013

· Mar 05, 2013
Are there any temperature restrictions identified by DeMarini for this bat?
Asked by Bubblehead on Feb 28, 2013

Is this new ASA stamp a "100 MHP" standard or is it still "98 MPH"?
Asked by Rock'n Bombs on Jan 31, 2013
The new ASA standard is tested with a ball thrown towards the bat at 105 mph to allow the exit speed of the bat to remain at 98 mph. You can find the rule update at the following link: http://www.justbats.com/blog/index.php/3226/asa-rule-update.

Got it on Friday and put 30 swings on it. The shell started to peel. Is this a defect or should I expect this on replacement?
Asked by roach89!! on Jan 13, 2013
The 2013 DeMarini J3: DXNT3 Slow Pitch bat has had good reviews. Every bat will acquire marks and rubbed paint as it gets used. If your paint is peeling it should not affect the performance of the bat. You can, however, return it if you would like. The bat has a full 12 month manufacturer's warranty through DeMarini.

Asked by j bones on Dec 08, 2012
The 2013 DeMarini J3: DXNT3 will be most similar to the J2 Flyswatter in terms of performance and overall feel.
